Rosters will be posted online and the rosters will be locked after the 3rd week f the season. Players will have photo and identification registered with the league. Players not playing in their proper age group will be eliminated with an electronic system that if put in question the players photo will be checked by the league to ensure fair play.
The benefits include a fully functioning website that is updated and covers your team whether you win all or none of your games. If your organization does not have a website, you can direct your organization to the league website (www.Pioneer-League.com) where we will post vital information on game dates and locations complete with directions and photos. If your organization takes photos we will post those as well. Your banner and logos will be represented with every other team in the league. If you need a logo or upgrade we can assist you with graphics as well. We also will be sending staff to film clips of your games so that the thousands of people that log onto the site can see what great work your organization is doing.
We also will provide structure that is rare in this area. We will provide teams with a full schedule of games (8 for teams 14 and under and 10 for teams 15 and up. Teams will have a schedule well in advance to obtain proper permits and travel arrangements. Playoff format is predetermined based on the amount of teams with higher seeds getting home games until the championship weekend. Championship weekend and All Star weekend will be held at one super site for a celebration day of top quality football that the entire league and city will enjoy. Referees will be paid for by the league in the 2nd round of playoffs and on so you can budget yourself accordingly.
The 2012 season will mark a turning point in the perception of football in the New York City area. The area and state of New York as a whole does not get national recognition for being a breeding ground for football talent. That is about to change with the inaugural season of the Pioneer Football League. This promises to be the premier Metropolitan Area football league for youth and young adult football. The mission of the league is to be dedicated to a quality experience for players, coaches and owners. As a result of increased organization and structure that is lacking in the football landscape you will be able to give a better experience to your parents and fans of the communities in which you operate within.
